Located in Vanuatu's capital Port Vila, stunning waterfront position opposite Irikiki Island Resort with reciprocal use of …More
We took our parents here as a surprise for their 50th wedding anniversary, and loved every minute of it! We had two small children with us (2yo and 4yo), and everyone - young and old - just loved our stay. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite, and could not do enough for us. Our parents had an overwater villa which was just beautiful, and they had stairs from their back deck down into the lagoon, and were able to swim from there. A million fish and starfish - it was amazing! The giant swimming pool was great, and there was a large children's pool which the kids loved. The hotel has plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained. Highly recommended!
"Wonderful Two Weeks Relaxing by the Second Lagoon"
We really enjoyed our stay at Poppys on the Lagoon. The rooms and the grounds were comfortable and well maintained, the restaurant served a good variety of well cooked food, from 7:30am though to 7:30pm, but best of all, the staff were amazing friendly and cheerful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The tour desk was very helpful in organising local tours and also a trip to Tanna to see Mount Yasur. When our bag was stolen while out on a day tour around Efate, everyone at Poppys was just amazingly helpful to make sure it didn't ruin our holiday. I would gladly stay at Poppys again next time I visit Vanuatu.
Very clean place, towels changed everyday, dishes left in sink were washed, even our clothes that were left out of our suitcase were folded and shoes were lined neatly!
The day time receptionist was very helpful with giving us info on tours and places to see and helped book the tours for us! She also gave great advice on travelling on buses and how much to go to certain places. And also pointed us in the right direction for trying lap lap and kava. The night time receptionist was not as knowledgeable about the tours as the day time receptionist was but was still eager to help.
Bed was comfy
Nice view from the balcony, can see water. Saw a P&O cruise ship sailing in one day!
There is a tv but only 3 channels that worked (in our room anyway), 2 of which were aussie channels (SBS and channel 9). Although we didn't mind since watching tv there wasn't priority. There is a dvd player though.
Most importantly, there is air con! very very nice in the sticky humid heat =)
Ended up extending my stay here. A good budget resort for travellers looking for comfort without spending big bucks. I took the single room which is basic but still nice at the same time. Staff are fantastic! Very helpful and friendly
A very family friendly resort. The room has lovely views over Erakor island and to the mainland and was well set up for those wanting to self-cater. A barbecue and outside dining area overlooking the pool made for a couple of nice meals. The staff were friendly and helpful. The new cafe and bar opened the last day that we were there. This is a real addition to the resort and the dining options open to guests. Our kids lived in the pool. Travelling in to Vila couldn't have been easier. I don't think we ever waited for more than 2 minutes for a local 'bus' to appear and whisk us in or out of town for 150 vatu a head.
We loved our stay at Erakor. The staff members were wonderful. It is close to Port Vila but far enough to escape the world. The island is just beautiful and the restaurant overlooks the water. I would highly recommend it and we will return when we are in need of a blissful break.
"Lovely location under New Management 1st Sept 2014"
The new manager of 2 weeks met us on arrival and apologised & explained there was a lot of upgrading & refurbishing taking place as new owners had just taken over on 1st Sept 2014. This was evident during the 3 days we stayed there with servicemen going about their business which didn't hinder us at all.
We booked a Harbour View room which was well worth the extra money although they could do with more outdoor furniture. This will probably arrive under new owners. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of this small hotel and to be able to enjoy a drink or a meal out over the water and watch cruise ships going in & out the harbour was a real bonus... Very pretty at night. The restaurant service was slow but I'm sure that will improve in time. We used the swimming pool a lot rather than the sea but that was choice.
Possibly a bit cramped for families but OK for couples.
We enjoyed being so close to town.... 5 minutes walk along the waterfront took us to the centre of Port Vila.
Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.
